[ laughter ] >> reporter: i'm feeling like an old man this morning! this is a different kind of car here. this is a smart car and, you know, if you are ever having trouble parking in san francisco or anywhere, this is the car -- it's very tiny economical, it almost feels like you're sitting in the back seat but i'm over 6 feet and i can actually sit in this one. i don't know if i would feel safe on the freeway but it's neat to look at and nice to drive around town if you can. let's talk weather outside. we have big changes coming in our direction as high pressure beginning to sneak in overhead. we have some mostly clear skies although some patchy fog showing up in some of the valleys. temperatures are a little chilly. 30s and 40s inland 50s at the coast. high pressure should make for a sunny afternoon on this thanksgiving, good day to e
will be in tonight. lawrence karnow will be back tomorrow morning. stay tuned. in terms of how all this the news of the morning and the patchy, dense fog is affecting the traffic, you know who we turn to. elizabeth? >> unfortunately, fog is not an issue this morning as we thought blanketing all our bridges yesterday. you won't have to contend with that. here's a live look, cars this morning across the san mateo bridge. the cars, the taillights, that's westbound 92. 15 minutes is that drive time now between hayward and foster city. some other roads, here's a live look at the westbound 580 drive. getting busy you can see some of that fog in this camera. a little bit of fog right there making it hard to see that eastbound 580 commute but in the commute direction of westbound 580 so far looks good through livermore and near the dublin interchange. let's go to our maps. we have been following a number of breaking news incidents overnight. and at this hour, the off-ramp to treasure island remains shut down eastbound and westbound from interstate 80. there's been
there. we have tomorrow coverage with lawrence karnow and elissa harrington but we begin with cate caugiran at the richmond/san rafael bridge where winds are the story. >> reporter: i'm not wearing a hat. the wind is blowing straight through my hair now. we are hearing that winds are sustained at about 25 miles per hour at sfo. in oakland they are 16 miles per hour. it's going to get worse with wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour. look at the flagpoles and the trees. you can see just how strong that wind is blowing here on the bridge. now, if you combine those winds with the rain and a busy morning commute, we are looking at potentially dangerous driving conditions. now, with high winds on the bridge, chp says it is a possibility they could ask trucks to find alternative routes if winds pick up to dangerous speeds. now, it is inevitable when weather like this hits the bay area that oil comes up from the roads making them slicker than normal. chp officers told thus morning, the most common mistake that drivers make in weather conditions like these. >> drive too fast. when people driv
